Training for Home Gardeners
Foundation Certificate In Garden Planning and Development Level 3 VHT042
The value of the green-space in both the urban and the rural environment is undisputed. The benefits to wildlife and humans alike are no longer disputed. Many new homes are being built and many of their new owners have no idea where to start in the development of their plot. It can be very intimidating. Good advice can be difficult to find, which is why taking a course in garden planning and development is ideal for the first-time home-owner.
During 200-hours of study you can learn how to tackle your plot. The Foundation Certificate In Garden Planing and Development Level 3 course gives you the skills to assess the opportunities, survey the site and make a plan, and then implement that plan. Along the way you can choose between hard and soft landscaping features i.e. paving vs. plants! You can also consider how to reduce the environmental impact of your garden by saving water or creating wildlife friendly features.
